Loving the new paint-job. Looks like red was the colour after all, and I'm glad you didn't go in for any other. The finish looks immaculate! Is this the same red available on the Jazz?

More pictures would be appreciated!

EDIT: Just noticed that you changed the wheels as well! These look like 17"? Why? I liked the previous ones a lot! But these look smashing too!
Thank you! This is Flash Red from Polo, Honda jazz have got slightly darker tint.
Yeah, more pictures on the way, i didn`t finalize with these 17", they are not good, 15" is the best size. "17in is only show No Goo!"

Which alloys are they?

How did you blacken the headlights and give the amber effect?
Thank you! Yeah, I stripped the car only to some extend, the doors and windshields where fully stripped, the rubber beadings around the windshield all got replaced. I didn`t strip the engine room, interior and boot space as i want the same black to get that combo effect.

Alloys are some Taiwan brand `R-1'

Headlights are after-market.

Ohkay.I got my car stripped and painted becuase I wanted to get rid of all the minor rust under the rear windsheild and a few more places.Will post pictures of my car soon.

Post some pictures with the 15inch Alloys then.
Any plans of painting the calipers red?

How much did the headlights cost you?Where did you get them from?

Default 15" is the best fit.

Thats great. Even i got my windhield all removed and got rid off all minor rust under it. Check out some more pictures with 15", now with ultra low 195/45 profile(coz i like it low) This is more comfortable and fun when compared to the 17`s.
Gave the old Gold rims a new custom finish and centre cap with carbon fibre vinyl background.

I dont have any plan to paint the caliper red, as it is very common color these days, i`ve some other color plan, watch this space.

Thanks, even the ride is too good very good steering response and feel more planted unlike 17`s

The rim finish is a custom shade, I edited the formulation to get a darker tint and added some more metallic paste for more metallic lustre.

The base color name is Castle Grey.
In real the color look more appealing

Good Job Shaan Ur ride just got hotter.. I feel the OHC is one of the very few cars which looks good in several shades.

Cheers

Simply awesome.
I think its a good decision to go for the 15" ..makes it lower ; plus it will slightly shorten your overall gearing.
Very tastefully done

Thank you. You are true, thats why it took so long for me to select this color, i was really scared how the car will turn into after the full paint job.

Yeah! 15" is the best fit for OHC vtec, it made the car much lower also, while on 17 it was so high and the steering response and overall driving dynamics was poor.

Am really loving this set-up, cause its very fun to drive and practical for me.

Yes and you get a little more room to go wider with shorter tyres.. next time you could try fitting something more wider if possible without scraping..whats the ET on those rims currently ?

Yeah, even i thought so. I dint see any wider size with this profile. When the sizes go up, the profile size also go up proportionately. If you have any specific size suggestion please let me know.

I believe the offset are 7.0 or 7.5 J am not sure though.

@CityVIC: You have got 1 heavily modded machine. Isn't the skirts not hurting
on Indian roads. As such Honda is known for low ground clearance.

Day pics will be surely appreciated. Do post a video of the F1 LED
flash. Would love to see that?

What's the red stuff on the indicator (Headlamps)

Thanks Honda_Power,well the car isnt mine but a friend's.
With the tyre upgrade the car doesnt scrape over speed breakers.So GC with the Skirts are not an issue.

The red light is the bulb of the side light changed to red.He got it done looks sake.

Will surely upload some daytime pictures of the car.A daytime photoshoot has been pending with it.A video needs to be taken too.
